WEBTOON's new Ad Revenue Sharing Program announcement 08.01.2018

Hey Discover Creators!


Congratulations to all of you, our talented creators, for collecting more than one million dollars through the Patreon Pledge Program! The Patreon Pledge Program wrapped up on July 31st, and we’re very excited to announce our new efforts to support the creative community.


We’ve been teasing our Ad Revenue Sharing Program for Discover since June and we are unveiling the beta today.


You’ll find the new ‘Ad Sharing βeta’ tab on your dashboard after you publish an episode. You can apply to join the beta program on the ‘Ad Sharing βeta’ tab. 


As with our Patreon Pledge Program, your webtoon will need to meet certain eligibility criteria to start collecting ad revenue. Previously, the Patreon Pledge Program required you to choose a single series for monetization; now, all series that qualify may earn ad revenue in the Ad Revenue Sharing Program.


We ask you to bear with us for a few weeks after you apply while we review and approve each individual series. In order to build an advertiser-friendly environment and maximize revenue across the platform, we need to conduct an extensive review of all applications.


We will announce specific details of the Ad Revenue Sharing Program’s operations and policies in the upcoming weeks. Please stay current with the Ad Revenue Sharing Program Terms of Service and the content guidelines in the Discover Policy.
